"Next to Frodo on his right sat a dwarf of important appearance, richly dressed. His beard, very long and forked, was white, nearly as white as the snow-white cloth of his garments. He wore a silver belt, and round his neck hung a chain of silver and diamonds."

Strategy

Gloin is a great addition for any army attempting to assault a fortress. His Siegemaster of Erebor renders nearby units immune to arrows fired by defensive structures. His Shake Foundation is a great way to open a gate without the need for siege engines, and his Shatterhammer can be used to create a huge disruption to allow your army to move in uncontested for a few seconds. Be careful when using Shatterhammer as Gloin will have to move to the center of the target area in order to use it.
